Statistics tell us that in any given year, 15% of Americans will move to a new home. That means that 40 million people will have new places to live, and countless more will have new neighbors. If you are invited to the housewarming party, or simply want to surprise a newly relocated friend or relative, look to Trias Flowers for elegant housewarming gifts.
History of Housewarming: Interestingly enough, the term housewarming is quite literal. In the days before electricity and central heat, when a new family moved into a home, their friends and neighbors would come over bearing gifts of firewood. This was to help the new homeowners keep their fireplace going during the long winter – to keep the house warm.
Calla lilies are truly beautiful flowers, whose unique shape makes for eye-catching home decor. Clean lines and a simple aesthetic results in a bouquet that is right at home in virtually any space.
Orchids are also popular housewarming gifts, as they too fit in with many different kinds of decor. Whether a country atmosphere or a contemporary modern vibe, these classic beauties will elevate the room with their colorful charm.
Green plants are always a wonderful choice for housewarming gifts, because they not only add quiet, natural serenity – but they purify the air and help to make the home more healthy. Dish gardens are a great choice as they easily move from room to room, outdoors or in. One of our most popular designs includes lush green plants, a tropical bromeliad, and a phalaenopsis orchid. For those moving into a new home in south Florida, this gift will exude a tropical air.
Housewarming gifts may not be as common as they once were, but they represent a meaningful gesture that is sure to be appreciated. For all of life’s occasions, make Trias Flowers your first stop in Miami – we are happy to help you to turn a house into a home.
